Oscar Lopez is a public health advocate working with young people and the government to address HIV issues. One thing in common with many new HIV cases he sees: the patients use of methamphetamines.
"The potency of crystal meth is much stronger than ever before," says Lopez.
A dangerous combo: high quality drugs combined with record-low street prices.
